Combining business and technology in the wireless industry for 20 years. Specializing in devices that include cellular mobile broadband technology, like mobile routers, phones, vehicles, tablets, data cards, USB modems, handheld terminals, and related.
Particularly interested in connecting things to each other, and to services, to create entirely new experiences. Connected everything. Agree with Jeff Bezos: "Gadgets are dead." (Services are alive!)
I am familiar with and capable of managing the entire (creation) "productization" process, from ideation and concept generation, through business case generation and validation, project planning, go-to-market strategy creation, pricing, costing, engineering management, manufacturing, and ultimately channel access.
I have international business and development experience, with internal and external teams, both OEM and ODM models, with substantial activity in and around the United States, Western Europe, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan.
I am currently interested in and working on layering software experiences over hardware or platform devices: IoT, IoE, mobile; embedded; SeS and SaaS (XaaS); applications; features; and, network resident services. I have developed software for the M2M markets, mobile applications for desktop, and embedded systems for applications like Automotive or Fixed Wireless.
